MassBay Community College to Offer Free Tech Education and Training to Unemployed and Underemployed Workers

MassBay Community College will be offering free education and training in the areas of computers and technology to unemployed and underemployed workers.Mass Bay Cc

This endeavor – funded by a three-year, $300,000 grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development – will allow students to take classes such as: Computers & Technology, offered in Spring 2023; CompTIA A+ certification, offered in Fall 2023; and Microsoft Office, offered every semester through MassBay’s Corporate Partnerships & Workforce Development Division.

“We are extremely grateful for this grant and for the support from the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development,” said MassBay President Dr. David Podell. “These funds will give students essential skills to help employers and will enable them to build on their education and credentials to advance in the high-demand computer science industry. Collaborating with area workforce partners to fill the needs in MetroWest is a winning combination for the local economy.”

Participants will be able to get individual career service assistance, career counseling, resume-building and interview skill workshops, and wrap-around services such as childcare and transportation stipends.

“Local businesses need workers who have computer and IT skills, but all too often, unemployed and underemployed residents have difficulty accessing the training and supports they need to develop those skills,” said Senate Majority Leader Cynthia Creem (D-Norfolk and Middlesex). “I’m proud that I was able to secure funding that will enable MassBay to bridge that gap and offer students a free pathway toward good careers in the IT and cybersecurity fields.”
